A native San Franciscan, Helene Zindarsian made her professional debut as the soprano soloist in Mahler’s Des Knaben Wunderhorn with the San Francisco Ballet Company after being “discovered” in Italy during an impromptu performance in a Sienese palazzo.
Helene performs regularly with many Bay Area gems including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, American Bach Soloists, Sanford Dole Ensemble, San Francisco Opera, San Francisco Symphony, and the Carmel Bach Festival. A frequent soloist with Philharmonia Baroque, Helene has been featured in Campra’s Requiem, Purcell’s Birthday Ode to Queen Mary, Rameau’s Grand Motet, Handel’s Samson, Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Rosenmüller's Magnificat, and Vivaldi’s Gloria. The Marin Symphony has also presented her recently in Vaughan Williams's Dona Nobis Pacem and Mozart’s Requiem.
She is also becoming familiar to audiences in Chicago, where she performed Berlioz's Les nuits d’été with the Park Ridge Civic Orchestra, a group with whom she earned acclaim for her interpretation of Strauss’s Four Last Songs on a prior tour.
